This page outlines the recurring activities Paragon Corporation does for the PostGIS project and what we plan to do if we get funds earmarked for this work.
We are looking for contributions of $100 or more towards our efforts.
By funding our efforts, not only do you demonstrate your appreciation for our work,
but also help us make it better. We accept payments via Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, or Check. If you are interested click on the relevant e-mail link and let us know how much you'd like to contribute
as well as the particular areas you would like us to focus our efforts.
If you would prefer to make a monthly donation or a smaller donation per month,
you can pay through Regina's Patreon account
Aside from our thank you, what do you get:
One of the main activities we support is maintaining the PostGIS Windows buildbot and also doing the packaging for the Windows PostGIS stackbuilder (32/64 bit) distributions. This is something
we'd like to spend a lot more time on improving and extending the support
This would help toward the following:
For PostGIS 2.0 we completely revamped the PostGIS Tiger Geocoder building from the work that Stephen Frost did and what was already there. Over the years we've upgraded it
to handle newer versions of Tiger Data, improve performance and accuracy, to include newer functionality like a reverse_geocode function. This work was possible largely due to generous sponship of one of our clients. There are a couple of things not so great with the current geocoder incarnation
we'd like to address
Right now the PostGIS bots just do the standard packaged tests and do not even test all permutations (e.g. none test installing from extension or upgrading from a prior version of PostGIS
or testing older versions of GEOS / JSON).
Funding this activity will allow the following:
PostGIS documentation is weak in many areas.
